My wife and I are thinking about adopting a 2.5 year old cavapoo (50% Cavalier- 50% miniature Poodle 8.5kg).
I have a very large office at work and am thinking I could take the dog with me to work everyday. I work at 2km from home and am biking everyday on concrete path that would be safe for a dog to run next to the bike (except if the concrete would hurt the dog's paws). The trip is mainly flat and I take about 4-5 minutes to make it but I realize I will have to slow down for the dog. Intuitively, I'd think that such a trip would be too enduring for such a relatively small dog but I might be mistaken as I have little experience with dogs (and even less with small dogs).
- Is an adult cavapoo able to run over 2km on concrete twice a day?
- How much time would it take to a cavapoo to run over 2km?
- I live at Vancouver, BC. The temperature does not get too high but the winter is very rainy. Will the dog be happy to run under the rain?
I could also take the cavapoo in a bucket in the morning and allow it to run on the way back in the evening, or systematically take the cavapoo in the bucket for half the trip. Does one of these alternative sounds like a better idea?
